So after a video of Ooni of Ife singing a Christian Song, saying “Jesus is his father” emerged, some Nigerians of course came for him…claiming it is wrong and that Oduduwa should be his father.
Watch as Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi declares JESUS as his FATHER?

Before Culture, the Ooni was a man with a religion, now upu want him to deny JESUS? You guys crazy or what?

Oba Akiolu is free to go to the mosque, the Alaafin is free to observe his solat but the Ooni can't call Jesus his Father

Ooni has a right to religion as to every other Nigerian
He was born a traditionalist doesn not mean he should die as one

It does seem strange that an Ooni would be calling Jesus his father, though. It reeks of hypocrisy…because, Jazz!! https://t.co/s1UFx0yqE4

The Ooni referring to Jesus as his lord and savior or whatever is hypocrisy and complete bullshit.

@walegates This Ooni should not even be mentioning Jesus in public at all. Does he know what it is to be the custodian of Oduduwa's seat?

This Ooni is funny, for real.
He worships all the deities in his closet but will come out in the open to claim Jesus.
Who is he deceiving?

Abi Oh. The Ooni didn't remember the bible or Jesus when he was frolicking with oracles to make him king. https://t.co/q1iY8cdiqb
